[image]Fires in Southern Italy, and lava flow from Mount Etna in eruption in Sicily - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team
This true-color MODIS image shows several fires (red dots) burning in southern Italy, as well as a couple fires in the northwest of Sicily (below, left). On Sicily's northeastern shore, the red dot likely indicates the eruption of the Mt. Etna volcano, the slopes of which bear dark-colored rock formed by lava flows. Sensor: Terra/MODIS.

[image]Phytoplankton bloom along the coasts of Sicily and Calabria, Italy - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
This true-color MODIS image shows a phytoplankton bloom along the coasts of Sicily and Calabria, Italy. Phytoplankton is a microscopic marine organism that uses chlorophyll for energy. Sunlight reflects off of the chlorophyll in the phytoplankton to create the blue-green color in the water. This image was acquired April 7, 2002. Sensor: Terra/MODIS. Data Start Date: 4/7/02.

Mount Vesuvius is more dangerous than previously thought, says a new study published in the March 21, 2006, issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. About 3,780 years ago, a massive eruption buried land and villages as far as 25 kilometers northwest of the volcano—a region that today includes the city of Naples, Italy, and has a population of more than three million people.
